Take care of your teeth with dental fillings from Waterfields Dental Clinic in Toronto!
A filling is a way to restore a damaged or decayed tooth to its normal shape and function. When your dentist gives you a filling, she will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.
A damaged or decayed tooth can expose the interior of the tooth to bacteria. Once inside the tooth's structure, bacteria can dissolve any healthy tooth enamel and cause infection of the tissues.
It is important to start treatment before tooth decay becomes worse. Progressive decay may cause severe pain, tooth loss or may require more extensive treatment such as a crown, a root canal, or tooth removal.
